Set for release next month, the animated version of KAHLIL GIBRAN’S THE PROPHET is a brilliantly conceived collab of ten amazing directors bound together in recreating the poetry and inspiration of GIBRAN’s classic masterpiece. Employing the distinct animation styles of each director, the film manages to distill 26 different philosophies to nine and still maintain the heart and soul of, what has become, a literary classic.
Produced by SALMA HAYEK and directed by the likes of ROGER ALLERS, TOMM MOORE and BILL PLYMTON (to name just a few), the voice talent includes HAYEK, QUVENZHANE WALLIS, LIAM NEESON, JOHN KRASINSKI, ALFRED MOLINA and FRANK LANGELLA.
Oscar nominated in 2012 for best actress for her role in BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD, 11-year-old QUVENZHANE WALLIS sat down yesterday to talk with reporters about her involvement in KAHLIL GIBRAN’S THE PROPHET and her experience in doing animation voice work. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)‘
